    I went around the block to drive down this arch of 'Kanzan' on 31st, Collingwood to Blenheim.

    Came across this beautiful street of 'Kanzan' on Deering Island Pl, east of Carrington St. Both sides, beautiful setting.

    At 3355 Deering Island Place, there are two very large 'Ama-no-gawa' on private property. Taller than the house. 'Kanzan' too.

    Also on the same street, at 3368 Deering Island Place is a good-looking 'Ukon' .
    Very attractive street.

    Two 'Shiro-fugen' at "The Old Farmhouse" at 6476 Blenheim Street.
    One is better than the other.

    I drove by there today. They are a little wispy, but look even taller than they appear in the photos. Very nice for the small corner they're in.

    On my way to UBC, I swung by 24th and Highbury to photograph the 'Shiro-fugen' trees.
    20190426_24thHighbury_Shiro-fugen_Cutler_133125.jpg

    And I wanted to check in on the 'Shujaku' at 20th and Wallace. It's still there, but is way past its peak bloom - I would not have recognized it if I hadn't known the address. I thought it was such a late bloomer.
    20190426_20thWallace_Shujaku_Cutler_133608.jpg 20190426_20thWallace_Shujaku_Cutler_133725.jpg

    So driving down Wallace, at 18th, there were 'Kanzan' off to the east, and another group attracting me to the west. I had the location slightly wrong when I posted this street in 2008, and I don't know which group I posted. Here is the view to the east and then west. These trees are the group to the west, from Crown to the west end of 18th.

    Between Wallace and Crown on 18th is a new-to-us 'Ama-no-gawa'.

    On the way to Deering Island, a flash of red caught my eye, most of the block of Holland Street south of Marine Drive.
    20190426_HollandSWMarine_Kanzan_Cutler_152341.jpg

    The north end of the block does have two established relatively young 'Akebono' trees, so I suppose I should not grouse about two very young 'Akebono' trees.
    20190426_HollandSWMarine_Akebono_Cutler_153219.jpg 20190426_HollandSWMarine_Akebono_Cutler_152819.jpg

    I think this Prunus avium, though it appears to be on private property, is in line with the 'Kanzan' street trees and has been planted by the city. I hope it's a tasty cultivar.
    20190426_HollandSWMarine_avium_Cutler_153327.jpg

    There is an interesting early cherry, low grafted, if grafted, maybe 'Whitcomb'? The third photo shows stuff growing at the base, which I thought looked like cherry rootstock, but not Prunus avium. Or maybe it's some totally unrelated thing.

    Now overwhelmed by Akebono, this single Snofozam must have looked good in its day. Finishing its bloom on the NE corner of W. 37 and Wallace at April 5, 2020.

    Diseased beauties—one even looks like it's fenced under quarantine—Takasago dotting W. 38th from Wallace westward; in bloom April 5, 2020. Witches broom, hairy stems, mutated multiple sepals: Takasago's pretty face can't get a break.

    Oh wonders, there is one Takasago that looks less diseased.

    I saw this tree out of season several years ago, was pretty sure it's 'Beni-shidare', but wanted to make sure the flowers weren't double. And then I forgot about it, left it sitting as submitted on the map waiting for me to remember to check it out. Ric Spratley did that for me today. He apologized about the photos, but they're good enough to confirm the ID and approve it on the map.

    Ah, Ric Spratley might be getting into this again. He has sent me photos of a 'Snofozam' on Dunbar, east side, at the lane between King Edward and 26th.

    Janet Gabites added these trees to the festival map one year without a posting or link to a photo. She has now sent a photo, says they are on 20th between MacKenzie and Carnarvon. Middle of the block, south side. The map entry said "Two 'Somei-yoshino' planted in 2013 on 20th, one at Carnarvon and one closer to MacKenzie". She has sent along a photo she took on March 31 this year. It looks like there are 'Akebono' on the block planted at the same time.

    The tree in the first photo looks like it might have had some run-ins with trucks, in spite of the wide boulevard. That other tree looks beautiful.

    Takasago on W. 38th between Blenheim and Collingwood, in bloom April 10, 2020. These specimens are about as good as it gets for Takasago trees.
